Guns, drugs, and thousands of pounds in cash were seized during raids in the Saffron Walden area.

Essex Police said its officers had arrested three men on suspicion of dealing class A drugs following “intelligence-led stop checks”.

It is unclear when the arrests took place but the force said two subsequent “house raids” had seen more than £25,000 in cash seized, along with three firearms, multiple mobile phones, wraps of drugs, and vehicles.
